Comments of the week: Busst Stop

12:00 PM on 09.18.2011 // Sean Daisy

What do you reckon; was this an original Banksy? 

Comments of the Week is a feature where we scour the front page, community blogs and forums picking out comments. The ones that make you think, the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry (but also laugh), and consolidate them into an entertaining package for the viewing pleasure of you, the Destructoid community. 

Comments will fall into three categories: 

TRUTH: Ah! 

LOL: Ha! 

WUT? Eh? 

[Thanks to Handy for his fine contributions to this week's comments and quips.] 



Handy: From Review: Gears of War 3 




Handy: This and all the comments echoing it make it into Truth this week, in honesty, it was hard trying to not let this turn into Comments About Jim of the Week. 

Sean: Yeah...about that...well... 

*looks down the blog* 

Yeah, this is a totally Jim-centric week. 



Sean: From Review: Kirby Mass Attack 




Sean: Everyone battened down the hatches, prepping for a shitstorm, but the shitstorm never came! 

Seriously; this was as bad as it got: 





Handy: From Polite Gentleman 






Handy: In an attempt to combat the idea that Comments of the Week rewards trolls by giving them the attention they so dearly crave, I present to you the winner of Destructoid's Nice Guy of the Week! (AKA The Jonathon Holmes Award for Achievement in the Field of Niceness) 

This award goes to Destructoid’s apparently new member Polite Gentleman, who lives up to his namesake by.....just generally being very polite, and nice too. Take note children. 

Sean: Don't worry though; we've still got trolls. Also, this guy's just too polite if you ask me. What's his angle? I'm keeping an eye on him. 





Sean and Handy: From Luigi's Mansion looks as good as ex-spectered (ha ha) 






Sean: It's a shame that I MIST out and I only WISP that I had taken part, but at least I get to REANIMATE the thread here. There was no one SOUL entrant; MANNY entries were DEAD-on and it was a GRIM task to pick the best out, without a SHADOW of a doubt (in case you hadn't GEIST). There is no SÉANCE to it, but I haven't been EIDELON my choices. In fact, it was almost irREVENANT to list them all instead of just link to the article. In the end I thought ETHER/or. 

Handy: 


Ahh! This, this is ectoplasm. I-it was a spooky ghost, he slimed me! 





Sean: You know, there are some people who struggle to fit into the Destructoid Forums... 

Sean: From A stranger appears! 


...and then there are some people who you know are going to just fit right in. 



Handy: From Gears of War 3 



Handy: This comment really scrambled my eggs. 

Ok that was terrible but seriously, how can I follow that!? 

Sean: Cole wearing a tricorne would splice my mainbrace. 



Sean: From You Laugh, You Lose 




Sean: I'm completely cool with girls on the internet. Not just pictures of them either. 



Handy: From Break everything you own with Hulk Hogan on Kinect 






Handy: I don’t know if I’m scared because of Hogan’s creepy plastic grandpa face or because it fits in so well. 

Sean: Well, isn't this a refreshing new nightmare? 



Sean: From I went to the store for my mom once... got lost now im here 




Sean: I mean, is there any need for it? Your name is right there, next to your avatar, for all to see. 

What a maroon. 





Handy: From Review: Gears of War 3 







Handy: Don’t worry, eventually the entire games industry will use a full ten point scale. 

That scale will range from 9.1–10 but still...I think it might work out best for everybody that way. Think about it. 

Sean: Are we really getting angry over arbitrary numbers now? What are we; sports fans? 



Sean: From Labor Day: Labor of Lovecraft 


Minecraft is an amazing game. I’m sure you all know the concept: a world is generated out of blocks and you can move those blocks around. Sure, you can craft tools and work with redstone (and make infinitely creative designs within that), too - but the main feature of the game is simple enough. Minecraft takes “Easy to learn, hard to master” to another level with the crazily varying degrees of simplicity and complexity. 











Sean: Now, maverick, you're going completely the wrong way about this. 

What you should have done is kidnapped Ross, taken him to Vegas and got him to count cards. 



I hear he's an excellent driver. 



Handy: From TGS: Sweatless Tokyo Game Show floor viewing. 




Handy: Unfourtunetly the only black albino transvestite midget in the world was not available that day, I should know, he/she is my Mom/Dad. 

Sean: Obligatory: 





Sean and Handy: From PS Vita at TGS: Rounding up all the sexy! 




Sean: Stealth is normally worth the price of admission alone, but with Jim winding him up, we were truly treated to a festival of bickering. Things got pretty Jerry Springer up in here and, let's remember, we're talking about lumps of plastic and metal that present you with amusing diversions, so let's keep things super duper serious. 

Handy: DOUBLE K.O.!!? 

Seriously, I’ve decided to dub people like Stealth “Anti-stalkers” as they just follow certain editors around because they hate them. Reading their writing, giving them hits, and commenting, all just to tell them they don’t like their writing. It’s only made to generate hits, and is not how anybody should comment. 



Handy: From Gears of War 3 




Handy: hmm.....I don’t quite........I'm not sure......what? 

Sean: I'm going to gamble on the following translation: 

"Never really got what was so good about Gears of War like everyone else, but it's good to hear that the XBox fanboys got something good. I don't hate the game, nor really like it; it's just an eye floater to me (an eye floater being an imperfection in your eye that obscures your vision, and is therefore a synonym for an irritation)." 

I'm going with a combination of autocorrect, gin and spicy grammar as the cause for the lack of clarity in Nitex's original comment. 




Sean: QUIZ TIME: A man has a living whereby he writes a bit about videogames and occasionally gives them a score. He doesn't steal from the elderly, punch kittens or set fire to orphanages. How much concentrated hate does such a man deserve? This week's troll roll sees Bobby Honaker test that question...to the limit! 





Sean: Of course, if you hate the Reviews Editor of a site the last thing you would want to do is advocate their staff choices by entering any competitio... 



...oh. Never mind. 

 

Here's to you, Bobby Honaker. Stay classy. 



Until next time; take care of yourselves, and each other.

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

I have done my part. Thank you Niero. Question: Does blocking someone also remove their front-page articles too?

I've been on this site for sometime and for some reason I've never done a quickpost until now.

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Going to be honest; I love out-of-context anime screenshots. They're... kind of incredible.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

It may be because I've been drinking but... We need some dung beetles from ark for the front page. Move that dung on out.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T
